L.A. hip-hop enigma Blu is showcasing his beats on his new album Open, but he's still a rapper at heart, and he couldn't help but get on some of the tracks himself.  Open hit stores earlier this week, and to celebrate we're letting loose one of tracks from the project featuring both beats and rhymes from Blu, "Steel Remains (Raw)".  A hardcore lyrical assault complete with M.O.P. samples, "Steel Remains (Raw)" finds the usually mellow Blu channeling his inner battle rhymer.  Grab the mp3 below.

It's been two months since the Hieroglyphics crewmember A-Plus released his Pepper Spray EP, a project that remixes Red Hot Chili Peppers classics and serves as one-fourth of his ongoing Tribute Series, and he has no plans of stopping soon. After releasing music videos for the songs "Give It Away" and "Road Trippin," the Souls Of Mischief member is excited to return with trippy visuals for his latest single "Can't Stop."

Directed by Motion Family, whose own recent work includes videos for the likes of Big K.R.I.T., Yelawolf, and others, the video offers stark depictions of street life, visuals that SL purposely kept natural to his surroundings. "I wanted to keep things pretty straight forward; the video was inspired by life," explains SL. "We shot it in the real trap; I'm with my real homies. Beautiful women in the kitchen – real Pyrex." But despite all the "shoe box money," as Jones calls it, SL isn't using the video to purport any images of grandeur; the song actually places SL in the role of packing and transporting someone else's dirty fortunes. "At the end of the day, counting money is still a job and somebody's gotta do it," notes SL. "Even if all that money doesn't belong to you, it's business. The bank teller doesn't own all the money in the bank."

After releasing three hysterical videos (with guest appearances from Charlie Sheen, Andy Milonakis, 2 Live Crew, Andre Legacy & a few porn stars), the Chain Swangaz unveil their latest sonic & visual acid trip today called "Futuristic Luv Patrol". The video stars Dirt Nasty as some sort of drugged out hot-dog-wielding David Bowie robot freak and also features controversial "white girl mob" rapper Kreayshawn and indi-rock legend Benji Hughes & Jack Splash.
